I canceled our Sky TV today. I didn't mean to I was playing the old game of trying to get an offer out of them. They offered me 25% off for 12 months. I maybe should have taken it but instead tried holding out for 50% off, as that's what we've been on for the last 18 months, but they wouldn't budge and in the heat of the moment the cancellation ended up going through.
I'm now living in the dog house at home because "I'm the evil one who canceled the Sky". They all want me to get it reinstated immediately but, considering the amount of people on here who seem to have been offered deals post cancellation, I'm thinking of sitting it out for a bit and seeing what happens first.
I would especially like to know from people who've received mailshot or telephone offers from Sky. How long did it take after your channels went off for them to get back in touch and what were you offered?
Conversely is there anyone who might have cancelled their subscription in the last couple of years but hasn't been sent any offers from Sky yet? Regardless of whether you wanted them or not.
Finally is there anyone who has been on three or more consecutive 50% off deals? We've been on two already so just wondering if this affected their decision on what we could be given or does it just depend on who you speak to?
